Just meh. Some of the meter is really weird.

This is a marvelous book about the orchestra. It introduces the concept of the symphony by showing the musicans preparing for a concert by bathing and dressing and going to the concert hall. It's a little long for storytime, but for a kid with a good attention span it would be a great one-on-one. It makes me kind of sad that it's no longer very well known, because it's just terrific.
